Though Drake's monstrous run with Scorpion ousted Juice WRLD's “Lucid Dreams” out the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, the Chicago MC is ready to start anew. On Tuesday (July 10), Juice recruited Lil Uzi Vert for his melancholic tune “Wasted.”
After teasing the “Lucid Dreams” remix, the youthful tandem doled out another potential banger, as they somberly rap about losing their respective partner to the hands Satan. “Damn, why is she so demonic?/ She's Medusa with a little Pocahontas,” croons Juice. His counterpart, Uzi Vert, flexes his rock-star cadence by ripping through the track with his distorted verse. “I don't want the money, I just want the molly/ That's what she say when she lookin' to find me,” raps Uzi.
As for Juice, he continues his hot start in 2018 after his breakout single “Lucid Dreams” cracked the top three on the Hot 100. Recently, he explained to Billboard how the record came to fruition. “Lucid dreaming is dreaming but you being aware that you’re doing it,” he revealed about the song's subject matter. “I feel as though if you’re able to control your dreams, you have more power and control over your mind, like you could reach more areas your mind. Therefore, I feel like it creates the ability for you to achieve more things in reality.”
